  1. This is Rafael Arujao breaking a backboard

    Jan 14, 2011, 6:54 PM EDT

    Arujao

    Remember Rafael Arujao? #8 overall pick in 2004, averaged 2.8 points and 2.8 rebounds on 40.5% shooting, completely washed out of the NBA without ever really making a rotation? It’s okay if you don’t. Anyways, he’s currently playing for Brazil in the FIBA Americas tournament, and he is destroying backboards. Courtesy of Deadspin, witness the…

  2. Tyreke Evans will play against the Knicks tonight

    Jan 14, 2011, 6:37 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans

    According to Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee, Kings guard Tyreke Evans will play against the Knicks tonight. Evans, who has struggled with Plantar Fasciitis, has missed the last three games with a sprained ankle. Evans has played 31 games so far this season, and averaged 17.2 points and 5.4 assists on 39.3% shooting in…

  3. Of course Boris Diaw comes to the arena on a Segway

    Jan 14, 2011, 6:25 PM EDT

    Boris Diaw

    Boris Diaw has never had much interest in being a “normal” NBA player. He’s 6-8, but came into the league as a point guard before finding his niche as a finesse forward. He’s as laid-back as they come, and his approach to conditioning has been somewhat inconsistent over the years. Rather than treat every game…

  4. Flip Murray is heading to Turkey

    Jan 14, 2011, 6:09 PM EDT

    Flip_Murray

    After an unsuccessful tryout with the Memphis Grizzlies earlier this season, 31-year old journeyman guard Ronald Murray has signed a one year deal with Turkish Club Efes Pilsen. (Hat tip to ESPN.com’s Marc Stein for the report). Since being taken 43rd in the 2002 draft, Murray has averaged 9.9 points per game in stints with…

  5. Pistons say Rip benching had nothing to do with potential trade

    Jan 14, 2011, 5:05 PM EDT

    Rip Hamilton

    According to the Detroit Pistons, Rip Hamilton watching the entirety of Wednesday’s game from the bench as his name was being tossed around in Carmelo Anthony trade rumors was a complete coincidence. Here’s the report, courtesy of Mlive.com’s Chris Iott: A Detroit Pistons source said Wednesday and repeated today that the benching of Detroit Pistons…

  6. Allen Iverson has no plans to retire

    Jan 14, 2011, 4:41 PM EDT

    Allen Iverson

    Allen Iverson didn’t let the fact that no NBA team had much interest in signing him this season stop him from playing basketball. So it should come as no surprise that he’s not going to let his latest injury, a growth in his right leg that will have to be surgically removed, put a stop…

  7. At some point the Bucks are going to get healthy… right?

    The Milwaukee Bucks — who played the toughest schedule in the league for the first couple months of the season — are finally in a place to reap the rewards of that with some softies…. If they could just get healthy. Maybe they are starting to get there. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Jennings…

  8. Chris Bosh offers advice to Denver’s front office

    Jan 14, 2011, 2:38 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Miami Heat

    Last season, we all pretty much knew Chris Bosh was out of Toronto. He didn’t push for a trade and kept hinting he might re-sign, the Raptors in retrospect should have pushed him to sign and extension or get dealt, but they didn’t. Everyone just rode out the season. So his situation was not exactly…

  9. Celtics’ Jermaine O’Neal trying to play through knee pain. It’s not working.

    Jan 14, 2011, 2:14 PM EDT

    89257_celtics_camp_basketball

    When the Celtics signed Jermaine O’Neal, he seemed like a good bridge from the start of the season to the return of Kendrick Perkins. He would provide more offense, he can play some defense, he and Shaq meant the Celtics were even better along the front line. The reality is that Jermaine O’Neal has had…

  10. Why the Clippers are winning — things got simpler and players bought in

    Jan 14, 2011, 1:24 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Clippers

    Wednesday night the Clippers had their coming out party, beating the Miami Heat at their own game — the Clippers were more athletic, they were the ones hitting threes, they were the ones carving up a defense with penetration. Those Clippers are radically different from the ones that started the season 1-13. What happened? While…

  11. About that O.J. Mayo/Knicks rumor, Denver reportedly isn’t interested

    Jan 14, 2011, 12:49 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    This really should have been expected. The Knicks are scrounging around trying to insert themselves back into the Carmelo Anthony trade talks. They started talking with the Memphis Grizzlies to come up with a trade package that might include O.J. Mayo. And the Nets said “no thanks, not interested”, according to a tweet from Chris…

  12. I don’t always vote for an All-Star, but when I do it’s Rudy Gay

    Jan 14, 2011, 12:20 PM EDT

    Image (1) nba_gay.jpg for post 298

    Rudy Gay is not going to be an All-Star this season. But he is the most interesting All-Star candidate in the world. He is not in the top 10 vote getters among Western Conference forwards. Kevin Durant will start, Carmelo Anthony is second in votes but he may well be playing in the East, so…

  13. Report: Rip Hamilton benched to avoid injury before trade

    Jan 14, 2011, 11:38 AM EDT

    Rip Hamilton

    This really says all you need to know about the coaching situation in Detroit. Coach John Kuester benched Rip Hamilton Wednesday night, and thanks to a history of odd lineups and other decisions out of Detroit in the last couple seasons that everyone assumed it was just another part of that list. Including other players.…

  14. Report: Bobcats discuss sending Gerald Wallace to Cavaliers

    Jan 14, 2011, 11:14 AM EDT

    Gerald Wallace, Ekpe Udoh, Acie Law

    Michael Jordan is just like almost every other owner in the NBA — he is concerned about payroll more than wins. That would be the only explanation for a trade discussion being reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo — Charlotte trading Gerald Wallace and maybe a pick to the Cavaliers for just the trade exception…

  15. Video: Amar’e Stoudemire on David Letterman

    Jan 14, 2011, 10:24 AM EDT

    Stoudemire_knicks

    Perks of being the star of the New York Knicks include getting stars to help out with your All-Star Game campaign, getting to see massive billboards of yourself all over town, and getting to go on Late Night with David Letterman. Amar’e Stoudemire did the latter Thursday night, and talked about his goggles and the…

  16. Report: ‘Melo wants Nets to sell him on team, future

    Jan 14, 2011, 10:08 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony intro

    It remains the ultimate final hurdle for the complex three-team trade that many reports now say could be completed early next week, after the Nets finish their current road trip (the final game is Sunday in San Antonio): Will Anthony agree to a three-year, $65 million to play in New Jersey? He wants the Nets…

  17. Video: Darko tips in two off a jump ball (for the other team)

    Jan 14, 2011, 8:48 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Sacramento Kings

    The consensus on this play: Nobody had ever seen it before. Not the NBA’s twitterverse. Not Chris Webber or Kenny Smith in the TNT studios. Not anybody. Darko Milicic wins a tip during the Timberwolves victory over the Wizards, but in doing so knocks it into his own net. Two points Wizards. Just watch. You…

  18. Chris Andersen to sit for a week

    Jan 14, 2011, 8:12 AM EDT

    Chris Andersen

    I’m not sure if you’ve heard, but amidst the ridiculous number of Carmelo Anthony trade rumors is an actual basketball team in Denver that’s still playing games now and again. They’re not bad, either, but apparently fall a bit short of Anthony’s expectations. Regardless, Chris Andersen — Birdman and the Nuggets’ energy big extraordinaire —…

  19. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Two entertaining games and some ice cold Heat

    Jan 14, 2011, 3:22 AM EDT

    Durant Westbrook

    What you missed while thinking about the worst things people call food…. Thunder 125, Magic 124: Two teams that will make their bones in the playoffs on defense set it aside for a night, and that led to one really entertaining game. To be fair, there was a lot of hot offensive talent on the…

  20. Nuggets, Nets, Pistons three-team ‘Melo trade talks heat up again

    Jan 14, 2011, 1:25 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony Smiles

    Two different reports have the much-discussed three-team trade that would have Carmelo Anthony landing in New Jersey heating up again. Those talks were moving very fast last weekend but reportedly lost momentum early this week when the Denver Nuggets pushed for the Nets to take on Al Harrington and his four-year, $28 million contract as…
